Titled Sandy Koufax
, issued in 2001, serigraph numbered "176/359," flawlessly signed in pencil in the lower margin by Koufax and Neiman (both grading "10"). Edition limited to 435 total impressions (359 numbered impressions, 70 artist's proofs, and 6 printer's proofs). This is a modern classic and one of the most striking Koufax artworks ever produced. Neiman was impressed not only by Koufax's talent on the field, but by his character as well: "When you paint Sandy Koufax, you’re not just painting a great pitcher. It’s very important to not lose sight of the great individuality that set him apart from the typical athlete. He stood tall, far above the baseball norm. He was like Muhammad Ali or Arthur Ashe, and distinguished himself for what he believed in." The serigraph (25 x 34.25 inches; visible dimensions) is in apparent Near Mint to Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 32.75 x 42 inches. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice
